germany, make it hard for them to accept tougher economic sanctions. but this is where you need american leadership. the fact is that what putin has succeeded in doing is using military force to change international boundaries on the continent of europe. and if the europeans don't realize it, that puts them in considerable jeopardy. the european union is still on very shaky foundations when it comes to the monetary union, political tensions are rising. and putin is taking advantage of them. i think this is a very bad time for the western alliances. >> right. and historically, we have seen this happen in the past, going back to world war ii, beginning stages of that. let's go further. what does the united states have to do to show american leadership and intervene in this difficult situation in ukraine and russia? >> well, i think you've got to do two things. number one, you've got to turn up the cost to russia of this belligerent policy its pursuing. if the europeans are serious about wanting peace and stability on the european continent, they've got to risk economic harm to themselves i
the sanctions are are not known. >> germany rles on russia -- relies on russia for gas. >> energy flows conditioned during the height of the cold war. the idea that you turp off the tap -- turn off the tap on russian oil and gas exports, i think, is unreallistic. >> barack obama said sanctions could hit the armed sector, finance or lines of credit for trade. the two world leaders held their first meeting in three years, the ukraine crisis bringing them together in a way ta looked unlikely. germany's leaders are angry over n.s.a. eaves dropping on angela merkel's private phone calls. the chancellor saying there's room to cooperate. >> translation: there are differences of opinion over what balance to strike over surveillance to protect sit dispns and preinging the privacy -- citizens and protecting privacy. >> president obama was pawned to see the degree to -- pained to see the degree to which the edward snowden dislorms affected his relationship with germany. he tried to reassure. >> i have taken the unprecedented step of ordering our intelligence committees to take the rive si interest

of germany for example that nato would not know one each for their deeds were valid violating major league by president clinton and continued to be violated by george bush. i don't blame russia for its great for our instincts to stop it. so that's a big part of the negotiating posture both countries are taking to the ice age for example could wind up green announcing the agreement that i believe was announced in tbilisi where we said that we were looking for georgia to eventually eventually be a member of the site of the american is going to die for tbilisi and article five applied to tbilisi with my tomato a phony alliance immediately. i make those having a hard time as it is anyway. it doesn't have the resolute desk trying anymore since the soviet threat went away and were desperately trying to find one for a doubt are out of area operations became the latest attempt to do so in afghanistan and elsewhere so visit this is a complex problem but it does have the answers to it. it just requires exquisite diplomacy had a lot of ability on both moscow and large the spark to sort of book of sit
with germany and the transatlantic trade and investment partnership. this is an hour. >> please welcome dr. angela merkel. [applause] >> ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the chamber of commerce of the united states. period is tom donohue am the president and ceo of the spine institution. i would like to extend a special welcome to those of you visiting our headquarters for the first time. the chamber is a 102-year-old organization. this building serves as a central rallying point for the ..s. business community we host several hundred meetings here in this room alone every year. room we are gathered in today, the international hall of flags, is rich in symbolism and history. afterom takes its name the overhead banners of 12 great explorers who blazed the first paths of trade. they planted the first seeds of commercial and industrial growth in the new world. these flags remind us that the transatlantic relationship has been around for a long time. today, we are reminded just how essential this relationship is. alliance is.-eu critical to global stability, peace, and freedom. this has been p
the gas that is its gas supplies for germany for eastern europe what it be that easy for russia to simply turn off the gas to europe. when we would not be easy though it would be rather difficult russia is hard currency reserves. in less than five hundred million but has that collectively the corporate sector the banking sector and the state sector when in excess of seven hundred billion so long that bases its intended. well in excess of two hundred million so it cannot afford it beyond russia can pretend that you can afford it. and god intended doing that. waiting to see how frightened the worst react. ok what about the possibility that russia will be selling its gas to china there's a lot of discussions of right now going on between beijing and moscow is a possibility that's a possibility but quantitative limits of negligible. it's the quantities i get too small to expand the quantities we would have to build a lot more pipelines and the soviet states not really in a bargaining chip at this point of time. ok so mostly russian gas will keep on flowing for the time being listed as of the
march reminiscent of nineteen thirties germany through the city demanding that the ports regime not take definitive action too assert its control over the keystone of the country. armed and with this pressure that's on them to do something. it seems likely that they will further attempt incursions and just what you say that mom that we've been hearing to the old saying from outback a bomb. i think we can just hear the sand by committee and when he actually said he believed to be. i kept up with the wild child restraints are consumed the biggest concerns that we've seen as the russian propaganda that has been blasted out non stop suggesting somehow that the ukrainian government is responsible for the problems in eastern ukraine. the crane government has shown remarkable restraint throughout this process. her strength yet. well of course this is the way it actually american propaganda littered with incredible hypocrisy and double standards because president obama and the rest of us foreign policy establishment when making such statements about the rights of government not to use force to r
in putin. >> wolf, i think angela merkel, the chancellor of germany realizes that europe is not going to do anything and i think they have to respond, as you put it, to the putin challenge. i think military options are not off the table because they are week but because they are impossible to imagine. you're talking about going to the russia of border where russia spent 20 times what ukraine does on russia's budget. it's not clear what the ukrainian army is. remember, a large part of the ukrainian army in the east are ethnic russians. it's not entirely clear that they would side with the government. the sanctions route is the one that has to be tried and the german chancellor seems pretty firm that the europeans would join in broader sanctions and they want to keep ratcheting them up. it's important to know how much of an effect they have had because they have created so much uncertainty about russia that no one is investing. the stock market is down 13%. russia tried to borrow money on the international markets last week. they had to withdraw the offering because they couldn't borrow any m
at the woodrow wilson center they hosted a discussion on ukraine with former diplomats from germany, russia, and poland. they also heard today from chuck hagel. margaret warner moderated the discussion. . harmon and secretary hagel iterated this morning, i would remind you we are here to look at really 20 years ago at this fateful decision was taken in january of 1994 which was at it to offer a partnership for peace to russia, warsaw pactwer states. any on this panel i will at thece in this panel, time, the czech republic and hungary were clamoring for an nato membership. this was a compromise suggested by the administration. beginning in 1997, nato started thosembership first to three countries, and today it is 12 countries among larger than it was, the 16 members at the time. this obviously sticks in president putin's craw. in his telethon, i do not know how many of you watched this, he talked about it repeatedly. he said we were promised after germany's unification, nato would not spread eastward. when we said why are you doing this, we hurt in response this does not concern you. nations
sanctions against russia. germany ruthlessly pursued its mercantile interest and the lobbyist wrong. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including the former german chancellor. he is making money helping national gas -- natural gas flow. >> which goes to one of the fundamental flaws of sanctions as a foreign-policy tool, correct? >> it is a rather blunt instrument. choice than tono try sanctions. politics are a flaw. ismany is what russia -- rubbish' partner. partner.ading what jacktell you lew had to say. >> if you look at the impact on russia's economy it is misleading to look at what happens day by day. you have to look over the time crimeaussia went into since we have imposed sanctions. there has been a substantial in russia'sn and -- weak economy. we see it in their exchange rate and stock exchange and a number of important economic indicators. they were downgraded to one notch above junk and with the rationale and the bond rating was in part the sanctions being imposed. the question is how do we proceed and occur -- a careful way step-by-step

, everybody. it is always a great pleasure to welcome my friend chancellor merkel to the white house. germany is one of our strongest allies and angela is one of my closest partners. with her indulgence, i want to start by making two brief comments. first, as president, my top priority is doing everything we can to create more jobs and opportunity for hard-working families for our economic strength as a source of strength in the world. this morning, we learned our created 200 77,000 new jobs last month. all told, our business is now created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 consecutive months of job growth. the grit and determination of the american people are moving us forward but we have to keep a relentless focus on job creation and creating more opportunities for work and families. there is plenty more that congress should be doing from raising the minimum wage to creating good construction jobs and rebuilding america. i want to work with them wherever i can but i keep acting on my own wherever i must to make sure every american who works art has the chance to get ahead. -- i also wantt to say
to gorbachev that nato would not expand, for instance, to eastern germany. we could not find it, maybe somebody find it, but we have no record. we had no records of that. but gorbachev apparently seems to believe still today that he had such a promise. and president yeltsin believed that he had a promise, and they detail how he was led to believe that, that partnership for peace was with instead of nato in -- [inaudible] not the first step, not a preparative step which i knew because delbert and then christopher and my western european colleagues spent time to explain that to me. while they failed to tell that to president putin -- to president yeltsin at that time. so that brings me back to my point. it's not enough for the to be on the right side of history. it's important. but they should speak in clear terms. that's what russians deserve. that's what putin deserves. that's what russian parliament deserves. that's what ukrainian people in particular today because they are suffering in the war actually. so they deserve very, very clear message. and the message which meets the end. because som

forward unilaterally with those sectoral sanctions but germany is the linchpin here. so president obama will be trying to do some arm twisting. as you say, another issue that might come up the nsa, the two leaders could discuss the fact that german chancellor merkel was quite upset by the revelations that her cell phone had been happened. but the issue of ukraine will overshadow all of the other issues. >> and jean cummings, you've covered economics in the business world for so many years and you've got bp and bsaf and deutsche bank and these other global companies, german and british companies really considering bp with heavy investments in russia. pressuring the leaders, cameron, merkel and hollande, the big three. >> there's a fair amount of tension there and germany is -- their biggest trading partner is russia. there are big stakes for germany in these negotiations however it is also important that the world show a united front. and merkel has talked about the need to come together in europe and to agree upon what -- how to proceed. and she is tougher than many of the others. and s

to him multiple timesk and germany is pivotal, because they are reluctant to go further with the further ek sectorial sanctions, because of the impact on the german economy. the trade between germany and russia was $1 billion and u.s. and germany was only $38 million. and germany gets roughly one-third of the oil and gas from russia, so a real concern within the german industry that they are the ones putting the pressure on angela merkel to be careful of what she does next because of the ricochet effect, and anything they do in russia could come back to haunt the german economy as well. >> a lot of money is at stake. and ambassador holliday, i want to get to you, and what do you think about the sanctions, and could they really get vladimir putin to change course here? >> well, it is going to be difficult to get him to change the course, but the increased sa sanctions could be twofold. one, we could get the europeans and germany in particular to escalate the sanctions on targeted energy companies, on that sector, but broadly speaking, we could go up to full sectorial sanctions which would

from eastern ukraine being critical to de-escalate that. you andst met preferred, germany, we were covering a story for the european central bank. chancellor merkel speaks to present obama today. and they have a press conference. what will europe want to hear from chancellor merkel? will want what kiev to hear from chancellor merkel is that they are not going to hold back from further sanctions or any other action on russia after the latest exclamation -- escalation. of course for its part, russia is blaming ukraine, saying they sent a convoy in order to negotiate the release of the eight monitors who were captured by pro-russian separatists earlier. so i think what the ukraine wants to hear is that there is no stepping back, that they are ready to continue to back them on this. right heather, yesterday vladimir putin effectively told erchnof ofchurch an pull back. how are they reacting to that statement in kiev? are think people in kiev very much on amused by what putin has said after what happened here. it is pretty much business as usual, but they are obviously behind the govern
point ceases to be in the interests of the german government. germany gets a third of its oil and gas from russia and some of germany's best-known companies, volkswagen for one, have huge stakes in russia. so any type of sanction has a potential economic blowback and it's just a sign of how the west has a limited toolbox in dealing with the situation in ukraine, chris. >> all right, joe, thank you very much for the reporting. >>> let's bring in cnn military analyst james "spider" marks a retired major generally and former commanding general of the u.s. army intillgence center. general, thank you for joining us. let's leave the politics aside and deal with the urgency on the ground. what do you believe the situation is? who is ukraine fighting? what do you think the stakes are? >> fighting two elements really. you do have pro-russian separatists that are in east ukraine, but they're being supported directly, not only in terms of what i would call over-the-horizon support, weapons support, but also they have russian forces are on the ground instigating this and these are the folks we've
. both the u.s. and germany have tried to apply pressure on russia to try to de-escalate the crisis in ukraine, the u.s. taking the lead on sanctions, while chancellor merkel has tried to use her closer relationship with russian president vladimir putin to resolve the crisis, but it's not clear whether those closer ties are helping. in a phone conversation that the two leaders had on thursday, putin told merkel that he wants to see ukrainian troops pull out of the southeastern part of their own country. white house press secretary jay carney called that suggestion preposterous. now, the white house expects both leaders, both president obama and angela merkel, to talk about another round of sanctions against russia. that next round would likely be targeted at russia's economy, key sectors of the russian economy, such as its banking and energy sectors, but that would hurt the german economy as well. so, expect that question to come up at a news conference with president obama and chancellor merkel later today. also, one other big question to expect would be about those revelations tha
